I will use N5bn to upgrade governor’s office – Gov Otu

The governor of Cross River State, Bassey Otu, has stated that he will spend N5 billion to upgrade the governor’s office in Calabar to befit its status.

He said that such a place of business ought to be a landmark in the state in a media interview.

He added that he would change the signpost emblem to be the same in all state liaison offices in Abuja, Lagos, and other locations.

The governor stated that the state he dealt with at the governor’s office was not fit for purpose and that making improvements to make it more suited for purpose could even help to draw in investors who are prepared to conduct business with the state.

“I will not stop to spend money to make the governor’s office very befitting. It ought to be the signpost of the state. I will do the same in all our liaison offices.

“It’s when you make your abode or office befitting that will add value and appeal to investors. Filthy environments and poor architectural outlook can discourage.

“The renovations will be done with transparency. It is estimated that the costs of the renovations will be between N3 to N5 billion. But for now the contractors are working pro bono,” he said.
